Yoga for Movers and Shakers

Clinician: Anita Miotti

This is a yoga class designed to connect yoga asana practice with functional movement. Especially suited to dancers, athletes, and people that regularly work with their bodies, we will look at movement concepts and common misconceptions about asana practice through an explorative and light hearted, but rigorous asana practice. Come with a water bottle and a yoga mat, and be ready to play.
